Starbucks under fire for refusing to let officer use bathroom
Starbucks is coming under Facebook fire for the way one of their employees berated a Philadelphia police sergeant who wanted to use their bathroom. The worker asked the officer loudly in front of everyone if he was a paying customer at their 1301 Chestnut Street location.
The sergeant is not named in the original story, which was posted Friday on Starbucks' Facebook page by fellow Philadelphia Police Officer Joe Leighthardt. It has since been shared more than 11,500 times. Leighthardt said he knows the sergeant. Some Facebook users are vowing not to go to Starbucks. The company said it is looking into the matter.
Is there more blatant disrespect of officers nowadays than ever before? Should Starbucks fire the employee?
